Lightbulb low oil pressure

does anyone have a problem with their oil pressure on a LT-1 motor? when my car idols it sits at about 15psi, and floored it gets 40psi. is their a chance that the guage might be off?

Re: low oil pressure

It probably is "off" the only true reading is a "known good" mechanical test guage. although there is nothing wrong with the numbers you have.

Re: low oil pressure

Mine does it too. Just like you said, it's perfectly normal. Mine sits at the bottom Red Line and goes up when I cruise.
